Think about those times when there was hardly anything called the internet, networking, mobile, Wi-Fi, GPS, GPRS, Cloud etc a whole new world around us so called virtual real world, in a nutshell IT has given a all new meaning to this global civilization.

Today no more distances matters neither time, with the ever growing technology the focus is getting sharper and clearer, we are one world, every one of us is under one roof, we are connected now.

Discovery of any new earth shattering innovations brings certain disturbances too. We the intelligent minds who thrive and drive our lives today primarily on technology are we safe enough? Do we really always thank this unseen intelligent friend or sometimes this friend gives us real problems?
